you should watch Office Space movie


you should watch Office Space movie and answer the following questions

1- What affects Peter’s job satisfaction? What causes him to like or dislike his job? Feel free to draw on ideas of facet satisfaction and theories such as the job characteristics model (including GNS). How do technology and the environment affect Peter’s job satisfaction?

2- Why is Peter unmotivated? What affects the motivation of his friends? What about JoAnna? What could increase Peter’s motivation (or JoAnna’s) at work? Feel free to draw on equity, Job characteristics, Expectancy Theory, Path-Goal model, Reinforcement theory.  You only need to draw on one theoretical approach! 

3- Using the information we learned about leadership, what is the leadership style of Peter’s boss? Is it appropriate? How could he be a better leader?

4- Why is JoAnna’s manager so worked up about her pieces of flair? Perhaps he sees the amount of flair she wears as an outward demonstration of her organizational commitment.  Using what you know about organizational commitment, how can “flair” be an example of an employee’s organizational commitment.  Why is forcing someone to wear flair not likely to affect their true organizational commitment. 

5- Stealing a part of a penny from every transaction is an example of a counterproductive work behavior. How would their scheme to steal parts of pennies be related to what you know about equity theory (and/or justice)?
